Bible Challenge – Genesis 2

“Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person.” v.7 (NLT)

There is a lot of talk about where we came from.  Many try to deny that man is a created being by a creative God.  Evolutionist say that we evolved.  The Bible says that we were made from the dust of the ground formed from the hands of God.  There is nothing special about dust and dirt.  In fact, as a kid I would make stick figures as I  played with play-do or clay.  But my clay figure never came to life.  Many times we over look the most important part of our creation and that is the fact that God breathed the breath of life into our nostrils so we could become a living person. Without the breath of life, our bodies would simply be like the play-do figures we made as children.  Without the breath of life, our bodies once again return to dust and dirt.

The breath of life is different for each person.  Some will live long lives on this earth while others will only be here for a short while.  Some will be influential, while others will be  influenced. Some will desire to know God, while others will reject God.  Some will put their faith in Christ, while others will deny Him. Some will believe in Heaven and Hell, while others will say this is all there is.  Some will believe there are many ways to Heaven, while others will believe there is only one way to Heaven. Some will seek religion, while others will seek a personal relationship with God. The fact that you are breathing and have the breath of life is a gift from God; how you use this gift is up to you. I don’t know about you, but I want to make everyday count, because I never know when today, may be my last day!

Today, how will you take advantage of the breath of life that God has given you?
